Mara’s South Congress Senior Photos

Filed in : Seniors

Meet Mara! She’s a high school senior graduating in just a few months. She loves reading, so we started her session at the downtown Sheraton hotel’s library. She brought along her favorite Harry Potter book and made me feel a little guilty about having only read the first 4 books (I’m work’n on it!). Then […]


Formal Portraits at 111 East | Angela & Matthew

Filed in : Engagement, Mini-Session

If these two look familiar, it’s because they’re a 2019 LG Couple! We took Angela & Matthew’s engagement photos on South Congress last summer (with their adorable Corgi), and when I announced the 2019 Mini-Sessions, they decided to use it as an opportunity to take formal photos together for the first time. As soon as […]


Minimalistic Family Session | Andrea & Eric (with dogs!)

Filed in : Mini-Session

Last weekend’s Spring Mini-Sessions at One Eleven East were FUN, and now it’s time to share some of my favorite photos on the blog. First up, Andrea & Eric! I first met Andrea & Eric in college almost 9 years ago (woah), and their wedding was one of the first I photographed after moving to […]


Lily’s Austin Senior Photos

Filed in : Seniors

Meet Lily! She’s a high school senior, soccer player, expert thrift store shopper, and might secretly be a model?? She was such a natural with her senior photos!

Colorful Wedding at McPherson Cellars Winery | Kim & Sam

What a perfect wedding day! It’s so special getting to see my friends get married and documenting it for them! I’m so happy for you, Kimberly & Sam! I can actually thank Sam for where I am today as a photographer. He was the Photo Editor who hired me for my first job as a […]


Kimberly’s Texas Tech Springtime Bridal Portraits

Filed in : Bridal

Bridal portraits at Texas Tech?? I’m in! Texas Tech is where I went to college and met my husband, the university both Kim & Sam graduated from, where tons of their family and friends went, where Sam works and where he’s getting his doctorate, where Kim teaches Art Appreciation… the list goes on. So CLEARLY […]


Stephanie & Oscar’s 360 Bridge Engagement Photos

Filed in : Engagement

We laughed the whole time. Seriously. Taking Stephanie & Oscar’s engagement photos was so fun! I first met Stephanie when she was a bridesmaid in Kayla & Tyler’s wedding in Lubbock last year. Stephanie & Oscar got engaged just a few days after the Myers’ wedding, and now, I’m lucky to get to know them […]


Patty & Nick’s Maternity Photos

Filed in : Maternity

Getting to take photos of my friends during big stages of their lives is such a great perk to being a photographer. My friends Patty & Nick are having their first child, a boy, in just a few short weeks! It’s easy to see the excited look in their eyes and know how ready they […]


Austin 360 Overlook Proposal

Filed in : Proposal

Almost 5 years ago, Kaitlyn & Chad climbed up to the 360 bridge overlook, with a bottle of wine in hand, for their second date ever.┬áThis morning, they visited the same spot, but Chad had another plan in mind. They planned to spend their Saturday touring for-sale homes, and on their way driving across Austin […]


Austin Food Truck Engagement Photos | Natalie & Matthew

Filed in : Engagement

Ever since Natalie & Matt’s proposal, I’ve been looking forward to having them in front of my camera again. This weekend, their engagement session was just as fun as I predicted! We started at a food truck park in South Austin (because is there anything more Austiny?) and sat outside snacking on tea and fries, […]



hey there!

My goal is to capture your wedding and portraits creatively and honestly. I believe the most important factor in choosing a photographer is choosing someone who will not only allow you to be yourself, but who will make it easy to let your personality show through in your photos.
